What’s in my handbag?

May 10, 2011 by

These “what’s in my hangbag” style posts used to be so popular a while ago and I never got time to do one so I’m making up for it now haha! My good old faithful red bag seems to be on it’s last legs so I’ve been borrowing this black/white one from my Mum recently until I can buy a new one. I don’t generally change bags often or to suit my outfits so it’s very sad when I have to put an old faithful bag to rest ;_; I’m waiting to find the perfect every day bag for my next one so if you see something I might like send me a link!!

    NEEED cute bear measure tape right NOW! It’s so cute! I need one for my job but mine’s just plain ol’ green and round :(.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I should to a tutorial on making a plain one cuter XD

    I love posts like this :). I keep thinking of doing one myself but my bag is full of so much pointless junk and none of it is in any way interesting so it would make a really boring post!

    I love your make-up case. I could definitely do with something like that in my bag.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      XD that’s what I thought when I did mine too!

    You’re so good at keeping your bag organized! I tend to switch purses depending on my mood so I’ve finally managed to get it down to the absolute basics. Keys, Wallet, Lipstick, Phone, iPod/headphones, and my inhaler, allergy meds, and ibuprofen. The lipstick inhaler and the medicine all share room in a little wristbag which I just stick in whatever bag I’m using.

      That’s a really clever idea, I think if I switched bags more I would have to do the same thing!

    If you find regular bags have a severe lack of pockets, you could always buy or make a bag organizer! That way, if you ever come across a cute bag that only has one giant dimensional portal, you can still use it :D! An added benefit is that you can very, very easily swap bags in a hurry ^o^/.

    This is what one could look like, but if you just type ‘bag organizer’ in google, you’ll get a range of types.

    And I even found a site with a tutorial on how to make a really simple one ^^.

      Ooooooh I think I’ve seen those before, they are so cleaver :D Thanks so much for the links!

      • Adis

        No problem :)! Just please keep doing what you always do :D! I really love reading your posts, especially the easy-peasy tutorials for handy and cute things ^^.

        • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

          <3 I totally will!

    Fabulous! :D Very fabulous. I have to say, I always do love watching these “What’s in my purse” videos on youtube, but I have never thought that there would be posts on such things, so thanks for the nice surprise. All of your things are very cute and convenient! I have to admit that you are brave, I would never EVER be able to use my scarf for things, such as wiping up spills and clearing makeup even if I do have one tied to my bag. I love my scarves too much to do that and I want to keep them clean. xD The makeup tin was very cute, hehe a bag within a bag! That fan looks a bit small when placed beside your gloves O-o I guess it is better than having a regular sized one huh? Anyway, loving it! ;D

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      I’m really glad you enjoyed it Wanda! Haha my scarf was only $5 and I would only do that in an emergency so I think I would be more worried if it was more expensive XD Yep the fan is a mini one which is good for times when it’s not too hot, in Summer I keep a big one in there!

    I adore the bag contents. Your style is totally on.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Haha thank you!

  • http://www.piperslair.com Piper

    Oh yeah, I meant to say, this post also reminds me of when I was younger and my friends and I would look into each others purses out of curiosity, we would trade and then look around and then give them right back, it was too fun. Ah, girly girl bonding.

    • http://www.violetlebeaux.com Violet

      Haha that sounds like a lot of fun!

    Long time no comment! I’ve been away from the blogs for a month or two, so I’ve got some catching up to do!

    As someone who has been desperately needing to organize (and cuteify) her purse, this post is so inspirational! Your purse contents are just adorable! I especially love the cute little embroidered hankie.
